Sweet Potato and Red Pepper Soup

Sweet Potatoe SoupOh dear, another savoury post. Please don’t unfollow me. I promise there will be more sweet filled delights that make you dribble over your keyboard to come soon. I’ll veer away from this unfamiliar world where the word healthy seems to be normal vocabulary rather than butter and sugar.

However, in the mean time lets savour this rare occasion and consider… me, a sugar addict, to post something healthy. Its been snowing now for 3 days and what all of us really need in these cold months is a warming bowl of soup. Smooth and silky, wrapped under a warm cosy blanket on the sofa. How I wish every lunchtime was spent this way. Alas, no its not, so lets savour the few moments we’re trapped in our houses or let out of work early.

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today and leave you with a picturesque photo of the snow. And possibly with dreams of this silky soup with a crusty bread roll if I’m lucky.



  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic gloves, crushed
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 fat sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 150ml coconut milk


Saute the Onions in some olive oil until soft. Add in your garlic and red pepper and cook for a few minutes. Add in your sweet potatoes. Add in vegetable stock until the vegetables are covered with liquid. I just used powdered Vegetable stock and water. Leave to simmer until the vegetables are cooked. Blend until smooth and add in the coconut milk. Season with pepper and salt to taste.
